The game originally launched on PC in 2010.

35 Comments

After announcing a publishing deal for Gigantic yesterday, Perfect World Entertainment is back today with another big piece of news. The company announced that its free-to-play MMO Star Trek Online is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall.

The game originally released for PC in 2010. Console players can expect over 130 story missions featuring a cast of Star Trek actors that include Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Michael Dorn (Worf), Tim Russ (Tuvok) and others. The game's two expansions and major updates will also be available on PS4 and Xbox One.

Perfect World went on to say that developer Cryptic Studios has made "considerable updates" to Star Trek Online's engine to allow for "upgraded visuals and an enhanced user experience for console."

It's not Cryptic's first console release, as Neverwinter is already available on Xbox One. For Star Trek online, the developer says it has "created a control scheme that allows players to navigate both the space and ground combat with ease."

For a closer look at Star Trek Online's console version, check out the video above and some images in the gallery below. Click the thumbnails to see a full-size versions.

Never been much into MMOs, but I love the Star Trek universe, so I might have to give it a go.

@93ChevyNut: Its amazing on PC, you don't have to play with people to do missions which is the thing. There are co-op missions such as taking on the Borg and Crystal Entity but other than that there's missions you can do yourself, though the starship you get sucks at start but eventually you can progress into a better ship.

I've been expecting this for a while and its good news. A lot of the mmos that are decent but not really successful on pc could actually find a healthy life on consoles.

Games like Secret World and Wildstar would be hits on console.

Wow. I never saw this coming, though maybe I should have. STO has come a long way since its release. Will the console servers be exclusive, or can existing PC accounts be used on the console versions?

I'm not particularly impressed by the trailer or the "upgraded visuals." I guess I'll be skipping this one even though I'm a huge Star Trek fan. :-(

@JSein456: If you're a huge Trek fan, I feel that I should let you know that this game really goes out of its way to appease and/or fulfill a Trekkie's fantasy. There's a lot more to it than it lets on. Pilot your own Starship, create your own bridge officers, visit lots of famous places across the Trek universe....if you can look past a little bit of cheese, it's a pretty great game. Considering it's free, I would give it a chance. It's also more fun with a friend. Just my two cents.

@sladakrobot: I'm normally not a fan of F2P games myself, but STO has a pretty fair monetization scheme. There's a currency you can earn in-game that you can convert into the game's premium currency with which you can buy stuff from the store.

@sladakrobot: This game has been around for 6 years already and is very successful. Its a fun game. I stopped playing because I was too much in LOTRO and had to make a pick. I also don't play as many PC games anymore so looking to see how the controls work out on the console version. If they are done well like in Neverwinter or even the XB1 version of ESO, then i'll be great.

Ha.. that's what happens when I jump to conclusions without reading the title fully. I thought this was Star Wars, not star trek. Carry on then.

@Spartan-1657: You don't have to play it. The rest of us can enjoy it, and that's certainly not a waste.

@BruceWayneJr: I don't have to play it? Oh thank god you informed me!

But for real though, if you enjoy it, that's great. I just don't think it'll be very successful on consoles so I think from a business point of view that it's a waste for the company.

@Spartan-1657: More exposure at probably not too much cost .. I'm guessing they crunched the numbers First and I'd say its a smart decision .. Can imagine console Gamers will get on board with this one !!

I've tried playing this a few times and the controls are too unwieldy, I'll be interested to see how this pans out, i'm willing to give it a shot when it's released......
